KOGATENDE | Serengeti National Park

kogatende Square big3 

To the south of the Mara River lies the Kogatende ranger post‚ built like an ancient fort. This part of the Serengeti was heavily poached by a neighboring tribe called the Wakuria in the 1950s and 1960s. The Lamai Triangle was added to the Serengeti National Park in 1965 resulting in the loss of access of the Wakuria tribe into their traditional hunting areas. Kogatende was constructed to protect the Serengeti rangers and anti poaching patrols‚ hence its formidable appearance. 

The ultimate destination for the migratory herds is the Lamai Triangle‚ which is a triangular shaped watershed area just north of the Mara River. The river forms the bottom of the Lamai Triangle‚ which is a critical refuge for the migration during the long dry season.

Groups of hippos numbering over 50 individuals are commonly seen in the Mara‚ which is approximately 1-mile east of the Kogatende ranger post. Large herds of giraffes are commonly seen feeding on the acacia trees that dot the floodplains along the river. Lumbering elephants and graceful elands are also regular visitors to the Mara River.

Nearby destinations include:     LOBO     LAMAI     TARIME
